At the currency exchange getting some cash before heading off to the airport after work. From left to right, 30 Kuwaiti dinars, 40 Bahraini dinars & 400 Qatari riyals. The Kuwaiti dinars were probably the most interesting, the most valuable currency in the world with 1 dinar = $4.5!


Outside Terminal 3 at Dubai airport on Wednesday night. Really like the EK slogan.


At Kuwait airport after managing to get my visa with the right stamps. The stamps were supposed to be 3 dinar, but cost me 7 after the vending machine decided to eat my money(!


My room at the Oasis Hotel in Kuwait city. Nothing flash but nice and clean.


View from the hotel window on the 9th floor.


In Kuwait City on Thursday morning with Liberation tower in the distance.


The Emir of Kuwait, Sheikh Sabah IV Al-Ahmad Al-Jaber Al-Sabah on the right with Kuwaiti flags fluttering in the morning breeze.


At the beach.


At the Memorial Museum for the 1990 Iraqi Invasion of Kuwait. Note the NZ flag top right.


The museum had some great diorama's of the various stages of the invasion and war. Here the royal palace is being attacked.
